I’ve been very excited about the Aaliyah movie since I told you guys about it a few weeks ago and I’ve been counting down the days until it premiers on Lifetime. In case you missed the previous post or forgot about it, Aaliyah The Princess of R&B movie on Lifetime comes on this Saturday (Nov 15, 2014) at 8pm ET/PT.
About Aaliyah The Princess of R&B:
Before Beyoncé and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from her debut on “Star Search” at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history.
Lifetime’s Original Movie, “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B,” starring Alexandra Shipp (“House of Anubis”) as the beloved actress and music sensation, is set to premiere Saturday, November 15, at 8pm ET/PT. The two-hour movie event is executive produced by Howard Braunstein, Debra Martin Chase and Wendy Williams, and based on the bestseller “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman” by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher John Farley (Game World).
I’ll be snuggled up on my couch this Saturday night with my favorite blanket, snacks, and drinks having a movie night. I’d love for you to join me during the movie to chat and tweet about the movie!
